This was really helpful and well-timed! I’m heading from Texas to Manchester for the first time via London this summer. I had assumed that taking the train was preferable to flying but your story confirmed it. (SO excited to check out the old Factory Records/Hacienda/Madchester scene!)

One quibble: I would have put “You get to see the Scenery” first! That’s my very favorite aspect.

Thanks again!
